Just returned from a two week stay at the Queens Bay Hotel.
If you go on the “all inclusive” package, be aware that on your last day the all inclusive deal finishes at 14:30. This affects a lot of people that fly from Gatwick, Newcastle & Manchester with pick up times from the hotel between 19:00 hrs and 21:00 hrs. A snack will cost you 1.40 Euro for a small bottle of water & a burger 7.50 Euro. Ensure you help yourself to buffet lunch on your last day before 14:30.
Staff, the bar staff on the whole were very good & the maid who cleaned our room was excellent, our room was kept spotlessly clean. However, some of the staff waiting on tables require a customer service training course as they were very sullen & never welcomed you at your table.
Breakfast, the scrambled eggs were awful, someone mentioned that they were made with powdered eggs.
Lunch, we did not bother with so cannot pass any comment.
Evening meal, the food is very repetitive but you can usually find something, we only had to eat out once because the menu was all Chinese style food. If you expect Cypriot food you will be very disappointed as it was never on the menu.
Cakes and fresh fruit were available in the afternoon on the all inclusive package, however one cake and five apples in a cabinet was all that was ever available. Very poor!
Sun beds, this is a big issue. If you want one on the lawn, set your alarm for 06:00 hrs and you might get one. An example is one family saved six beds with only two being used until the children get up at 13:00. Another example is three people five beds. Three claimed on the lawn two claimed by the pool. I think that there are about seventy beds around the pool but by 06:30 at least 50% have been reserved. The management need to address this ridiculous situation.
The hotel is a very good 3 star, it is clean but needs updating, we understand that a refurbishment programme is due to start in January of next year. The sea view rooms are good value, the views are spectacular in the evening with some of the best sun sets we have ever seen. The evening entertainment is very basic, karaoke, bingo & live music, we, like a lot of others found it was better to sit on the verander and chat with other guests. On the whole this is a good hotel that attracts the “over 50’s” back year after year, so if you are looking for a lively hotel, this is not the place for you.
